Award winning writer and journalist, and author of Overbooked: The Exploding Business of travel and Tourism, Elizabeth Becker describes both the global importance of the travel and tourism business, but also the challenges and problems created by that industry. Elizabeth Becker points out how travel and tourism is possibly the largest, yet most ignored industry in the world.. Elizabeth Becker provides information on how the indstry is still not even considered a business by many, resulting in it not being taken seriously by governments, writers, and travelers themselves. Elizabeth points out the three major areas of tourism, in the form of cultural, consumer, and nature destinations. She also discusses the new gigantic tourist market in China, as well as the old tourist giant USA. In an industry where the challenges include environmental and building deterioration, worker exploitation, and government failures, this is an industry that needs a closer examination. Elizabeth Becker pulls back the curtain on the enormous global travel and tourism industry.
George Neary comes to us from Hartford, Connecticut where his interests in history and preservation originated. He chose Miami Beach as home after being introduced to the Tropics when he was a former Peace Corps Volunteer serving in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines from 1973-75. His next venture would be marked by a stark contrast in weather while working in New York for 20 years. He worked for AFS International/Intercultural Programs. He then worked as Director of US Marketing and Sales.
George moved to Miami Beach to manage Flamingo Terrace Enterprises.
His first big project was Art Deco Weekend 1992. That’s where the very seed of tourism began!
There would be other successes working with Michael Kinerk and Matti Bower, long time chairs overseeing 8 Art Deco Weekends and creating more historic districts for Miami Beach. Miami Beach became a world-wide phenomenon and the number 1 tourist destination.
In 1998 the Greater Miami Convention & Visitor’s Bureau hired George to oversee their heritage and cultural tourism efforts.
He also oversees the Bureau’s gay & lesbian marketing efforts to promote Miami as the premier LGBT destination. George serves on the Board of the Miami Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and The Gay Pride Committee (who plan the largest LGBT event in Miami-Dade, attracting more than 80,000 attendees this past year.) He was a founding Board member of Miami Beach’s Mayor Matti Bower’s LGBT business committee for 2 years. He was awarded the President’s award from the Miami-Dade Gay Chamber, the organization’s highest award.
He has also been a member of the Miami Beach Chamber since 1993. He has helped developed The Museum Mile, a Chamber/Bureau cultural program involving Miami Beach’s 5 museums; and holds the very first Miami Beach Chamber INcard ever issued.

This week's show is a perfect example, and our interview with Diana McIntyre-Pike is a topic that should be of interest to all Caribbean professionals - how to simultaneously transform our communities while attracting tourists to them.

Life's Issuses with Lloyd Rosen with Special Guest Ezra Thomas & Dale Stanten
Often confused for a solo artist, Ezra Thomas is actually a band. The union of singer-lyricist-guitarist Ezra Vancil and percussionist Aaron Thomas began in 1996 with their first disc, Buck 50. Five years of playing in the Dallas roots scene culminates for them with The Weight of Being, a quietly seductive album that won them a 2003 SXSW showcase. The album burns slowly and ethereally through 12 tracks that speak to the struggle between the body and soul. Ruminating through lost love and melancholic yearnings, Ezra Thomas employs folk, R&B and modern rock to weave a sadly beautiful sound.
While raising her young family, Dale Stanten obtained her RN degree and practiced psychiatric nursing. She parlayed her medical and extensive sales experience to become CEO of her Destination Management Company which for twenty years organized conventions, corporate events, and meetings for local, national, and international guests. Dale conducted numerous educational seminars and assisted in developing a tourism college degree program. She serves on the North Shore Board of Juvenile Scholarship Aid,
